Towards Formative Assessment of e-Learners Using Concept Map

V. Senthil Kumaran
Abstract—The intention of this research was to automate the process of formative assessment of e-learners using concept map (CM). Formative assessment assesses the learners during the learning process and further modifies the current teaching process to improve the learner’s outcome. It is specifically aimed at generating a performance feedback to improvise and accelerate learning. Formative assessment of the learners on the topics being taught is essential in an e-learning environment. Based on the learner’s learning, the e-learning system can change / update the pedagogy, recommendations can be made for further study, and the learners’ performance can be evaluated. In this paper, we propose CM based formative assessment of learners’ learning. CM is an effective tool for determining what a learner knows in the topics covered. The CM constructed by the learner is mapped with the reference CM created by the subject expert. The experimental evaluation is presented and discussed.

Index Terms—Concept map (CM), e-assessment, e-learning, formative assessment.
